Think that our awesome, sweet, totally killer Eddy Merckx bikes are out of your price range? Think again, kimosabe. The Eddy Merckx EMX1 road bike delivers all the high end, peloton crushing performance you expect from the EMX5, but in a much more value oriented package. You still get a full carbon fiber frame and fork, a tapered headset and Shimano's outstanding 105 groupset. So what's the catch? There isn't any. This is an incredible, bike that would be as at home on the race course as it is on a Sunday group ride. The frame is constructed from 24HM UDM carbon fiber so it's incredibly light and unbelievably stiff. The full carbon fork is lightweight and absorbs vibrations, with the tapered integrated headset helps stiffen up the front end for out of the saddle efforts. It also comes with a full 105 groupset. And we do mean the full group. You won't find any cheater parts on here. No unbranded brakes, no FSA cranksets. This is the Full Monty, so you get reliable, easy to maintain performance that will serve you well for years to come.
